Since i love dogs and this run is dedicated to our four legged pups and its Disney i knew i had to sign up for the Virtual Run Series so i can get 4 medals, Coolcore towel and for those furry friends a collapsable dog bowl, and dogs tags. Plus its a charity event donation go to Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando!

There is also some merchandise and i definitely bought a shirt and pin because why not add to my collection of Disney/runDisney merchandise. Will you be participating with a set of paws? Let me know in the comments below!

runDisney: Dopey Challenge..Round 2!?

Im feeling a bit Dopey…

If your new to my blog welcome! And if your new I’m pretty sure that you are also a bit confused by the first line…so let me just fill you in.


Walt Disney World Marathon weekend sign ups are tomorrow, meaning the 5 year anniversary of this challenge…now my cousins and i talked and we said that we would all sign up together for the challenges 5 year anniversary and like i said sign ups are tomorrow…so were all signing up.

My cousin Olivia and I did this challenge back when it was the inaugural Dopey Challenge in 2014 and so there are a lot of emotions going on for me, it’ll be my first time back to WDW in about 3 years, Dopey was my very first event EVER, the first time I’ve experienced runners toe and this will be the longest run since I’ve had a slipped disc. So excited, nervous and terrified can pretty much sum up what feel right now.


Although i know what to expect for this run i don’t know if its a positive thing or a not so positive thing…i haven’t put my finger on that quite yet.. all i know is I’m definitely going to finish it again…hopefully.

I know in the end it’ll be fun and a great accomplishment but the anxiety that leads up to it is overwhelming…I just know that if i get in tomorrow ill be running with my best friend, and i will be DEFINITELY train and work on strength and conditioning  as well as losing some weight to make the run easier on my back…wish me luck!

runDisney: Virtual Running Shorts Take 2!

My all time FAVORITE runDisney event is back for another take with some paw-tific news!

If this is your first time hearing of the Virtual Running Series let me fill you in: The series includes three 5k’s to complete. Participants will receive a medal for each 5k completed plus a challenge medal if you complete all three 5k’s.

The best part is you can choose your course and who your run with, my personal favorite is a trail by my house and i love to bring my pups on the run! Its great bonding with them along with perfect exercise for the both of us.

Race sales begin April 11, 2017 so be sure to mark those calendars, this also is a great way to start in training for Disneyland, Walt Disney World or Disneyland Paris races plus with this training you get to start your medal collection or you add to them!

The charity for this run is Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando which will be celebrating 80 years of saving pets in central Florida. Now the proceeds of the race don’t go to the charity but if you can, you have the option to donate a little extra to the foundation.

Will you be participating in the shorts? Let me know in the comments below!

20 years of half marathons is insane, just like the Goofy Challenge or the Dopey challenge! But whatever run we do we can always count and agree that its the most magical run ever! If the miles weren’t magical already Disney has decided to step up their magic game and added a lot of 20th anniversary surprises along with special anniversary t-shirts and commemorative finisher medals.

So are you running this weekend? Let me know in the comments below your runDisney experience.
